- DEZ BRYANT SAYS HIS MADDEN 17 RATING IS AN 'INSULT'
Dez Bryant isn't incredibly pleased in the moment. But, fortunately for Cowboys fans, it looks like he'll have some motivation to play effectively anyway.
Tuesday, August 23rd will mark the official release of "Madden 17", but Dez Bryant was amongst those to hear his rating early. He was handed a "90" by EA Sports " quite excellent, but far worse than last year's 96. It also leaves him behind seven other receivers: Antonio Brown (97), Julio Jones (96), A.J. Green (93), Odell Beckham Jr. (93), DeAndre Hopkins (93), Larry Fitzgerald (91) and Alshon Jeffery (91). Needless to say, he's not pretty happy about it.
According to The Dallas News:
"It is what it can be," Bryant said following Friday night's preseason game against the Miami Dolphins. "We're just going to see what happens. Like I told Madden, they put me at 90, I'm not worried about that. That rating going to shoot up actual fast, you very best believe that."Inside a joking tone, Bryant continued on in regards to the disrespectful rating."I play Madden, I [expletive] adore Madden," Bryant mentioned. "They would do me like that? Oh my God. That is certainly an insult, like why would you do that to me? How much I appreciate you all. Like what? Not John Madden, since I really like him. It's the developers."
